Wait & Watch
The world is reeling under the second and in some places the third wave of Covid19. The battle is still on. Financial and health -- the tug-of-war is a close one. Bharat Diamond Bourse is working with bare minimum staff strength and trying to fulfill export orders.

The government orders are stringent and mandatory yet are being followed by every diamond exporter in detail. At present the Indian diamond market is flooded with export orders with the US government releasing some more stimulus.

Local diamond business, however, is yet to pickup. The momentum which was on till perhaps International Women’s Day is fast losing steam. Diamantaires will have to reinvent their strategies and keep their spirits high. All is not lost –because we have won the last time when uncertainty was higher and diamond business had discovered the new techniques of conducting business online.

One thing we all know is that diamonds are never out of fashion. For years, the love for diamonds has outlived all catastrophes. This time too it will persist.
